Flash thermography—a nondestructive evaluation technique that can rapidly detect defects in components—is limited in its ability to quantify defect size, depth, and severity. In this project, researchers developed a code that enables users to analyze video from flash thermography to characterize defects. The code has the potential to reduce costs for inspection of power plant […]
Program on Technology Innovation: Development and Validation of a Ground-Based Wind Turbine Blade Inspection System
This report discusses the field test results of SABRE, a ground-based wind turbine inspection and data management system. The research collaboration between EPRI and Digital Wind Systems demonstrated that SABRE is a fast, non-intrusive, and cost-effective inspection technology.
